Our meter tails cable (6181Y) is are used to connect the electric meter to the consumer board. Twin and earth (6242Y) cables are used for both mains and lighting ring circuits, as well as for radial circuits connecting electric ovens and electric showers. Three core and Earth (6243Y) cables are typically used as lighting cable for two-way switching of lighting circuits, such as in a hall and landing application. Our armoured cables (BS5467) are used to connect external outbuildings such as sheds and detached garages.
